LAS VEGAS, MARLBOROUGH, Mass., BASKING RIDGE, N.J., and MAIDENHEAD, U.K. -- From CTIA WIRELESS 2010®, Camiant, Inc., the leading provider of policy control technology, today announced that Verizon Wireless has selected Camiant’s Multimedia Policy Engine (MPE) as the Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) for Verizon Wireless’ previously announced nationwide deployment of a 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network.

Camiant’s MPE will perform policy control in the LTE network for Internet Data-, IMS- and non-IMS-based services. In addition, Camiant’s MPE will also be the PCRF for all IMS based services over the existing 3G network.

Verizon Wireless has been conducting trials in Boston and Seattle since August 2009 that have indicated that the network is capable of peak download speeds of 40 to 50 megabits per second (Mbps), peak upload speeds of 20 to 25 Mbps, and average data rates of 5 to 12 Mbps on the downlink and 2 to 5 Mbps on the uplink in real-world environments.

“Policy control is vital for us to successfully harness LTE and deliver services that meet the growing needs of our subscribers and their applications,” said Tony Melone, chief technical officer for Verizon Wireless. “Every day, Camiant is demonstrating their policy control capabilities, and we look forward to having them play an important role in realizing our vision of the nation’s best 4G LTE network.”
